Mud wrestling!

Seawatch 07.15 - 09.15, hampered by hazy sun. Single Great Northern and Red-throated Divers, 5 Brent Geese, Common Scoter, Red-breasted Merganser, 61 Kittiwakes, small numbers of Gannets, Razorbills and Guillemots, and 2 groups of ducks that were probably Pintail (3) and Teal (8).

Highlights of the walkabout were 3 Lapwings over, 65 Stock Doves, 150+ Skylarks, c3000 Starlings, Ring Ouzel (Pig's Nose Valley), 4 Chiffchaffs, 4 Goldcrests and a Firecrest. Also, given the mild weather, not suprised to see 3 species of butterfly today, namely Red Admiral, Speckled Wood and Peacock.
